Salvatore Aspromonte
Mr. Aspromonte is the managing partner of Dansker & Aspromonte Associates. He is a native New Yorker and the son of second generation Italian immigrants. By the age of sixteen, he had lost both parents and entered the work force. While attending high school and college, he supported himself by working at a large retail pharmacy where he rose to a manager by age seventeen. He graduated from Bernard M. Baruch College in 1974 with a Bachelor in Business Administration and he obtained his Juris Doctor at Brooklyn Law School in 1979, where he formed the Italian-American Law Students Association and he secured a clerkship at the Brooklyn House of Detention for Men, as legal assistant to the warden.

Immediately after admission to the bar, Mr. Aspromonte opened his first law office and from 1980 to 1988 he concentrated in civil and criminal litigation. Beginning in 1986 he limited his practice to personal injury and medical malpractice. In 1989, he merged his practice with Paul Dansker and formed Dansker & Aspromonte Associates. Over the years, Mr. Aspromonte has tried many cases and negotiated millions of dollars in settlements.

Mr. Aspromonte is the current president of the Congress of Italian Americans Organization (CIAO), which provides social services to the disadvantaged.
